Aviation Explorers June 11th at Quarry field?
I received an e-mail from Carl Walby asking if it would be possible for our club to do a demo and or some hands on budy box type training to members of the Aviation Explorers of Appleton.
I am posting here to see who would be available that night, weather permitting, to bring aircraft to quarry field and give a demo and maybe have one of the training aircraft with a budy box operative for that evening.
I beilive I am working that day, but if able I will swap my shift to be available.
If the weather is not condusive to flying I will try to make myself available to attend their regular meeting at the airport.
As of right now I told him to plan on brining his group to Quarry field and have given him my cell number for future contact if things change.
I myself was a member of an explorer group and this would be a great opportunity to bring new members into our great hobby that already have a passion for aviation.
Thanks in advance for everyones support and hope to see as many people as we can get out at the field on Thursday evening June 11th if the weather is good.

My name is Carl Walby and I am an adult leader with Aviation Explorers in Appleton. Our youth members are made up of youth 14 to 21 who have an interest in aviation. Many of our members have asked about the hobby of radio controls airplanes and I am writing you to ask if you or a few of your members would be able to attend out next meeting on Thursday June 11th. We do meet at the safety building at ATW but we are willing to meet at your flying field if that was advantageous to demos.
Would you have someone available on the 11th and would you be interested in giving a presentation on your hobby?
I can be reached at 920-470-4052
Thank You for your consideration.

Matt I have a trainer that is available for use, it works with the futaba buddy box.
It's ugly but flies great
Are you looking for someone to give a presentation to the group or just a demo?
I can also bring my P-47 and Edge.

I'm 80% sure I can be there and help out. Would need to use the hitec buddy box and cord. What is the exact time we would be starting? How many students?

Yes if available any training aircraft that you would be willing to let the group use would be great, as well as any aircraft you would like to fly for a demo... I have been able to get off work that night and will be out at the field in the afternoon around 4:30 pm or so. I called Carl this morning and I am waiting for him to call me back as to what time his group can be at the field, and if the weather is not the greatest I plan on meeting them at the airport for their regular meeting with some of my models for a static demo.
I will post agin here when I find out the final times.

Got the final word today that the aviation explorers will be able to make it to Quarry field between 6:00 and 6:30 PM on the 11th, and based on that I told them to expect a quick presentation at around 6:45. Other than that the rest of the evening will be based on the weather and the aircraft we will have available, I told them there may be a small chance a trainer aircraft may be available for some hands on stick time but I made no promises.
Also just an FYI the Civil Air Patrol may be looking to do something similar to this with us later in the summer.
So again thanks for everyones help with this, and feel free to be out at Quarry Field at any time on the 11th and fly whatever you like as usual. The only request we may have once the group arrives is that if a training aircraft is in use the other members my be asked to wait until it has landed to resume normal use of the field, but the more members and aircraft we have the better.
